10 Tips for Mastering if You’re Not a Mastering Engineer + Video Tutorials
iZotope has some great tips on how to master your tracks, whether you’re creating your own EDM or some intense soundtrack music for your film. There’s a lot here about monitoring and metering, so that applies to any software you’re using. Plus, I’ve included a few other quick tutorials on mastering in Ozone 8.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:
5. When monitoring, level match your master to your mix
A plug-in suite like Ozone 8 will allow you to do this handily, but if you’re mixing and matching plug-ins, try the following:
Put an unprocessed copy of your mix on a dedicated track. Feed the track and your master-in-progress to the same auxiliary channel, and slap a loudness meter on this aux. Next, get your master in the loudness-ballpark.
Now, as you loop the loudest section of the song, note the loudness reading of the unprocessed mix, switch to the mastered track, and bring its fader down till you’ve achieved the same meter reading as the mix.
iZotope has done a few video tutorials if you want to watch instead of reading.
